Any application within a free software desktop today from web browsers to media centers would benefit from good graphics hardware acceleration through the X server. However, for many years graphics acceleration has simply not been available in practice. Some of the problems in the past have included: * Graphics acceleration architectures that didn't provide the operations that applications actually wanted. * Lack of drivers/specifications for graphics hardware. * Acceleration architectures that...

Alastair D'Silva http://linux.conf.au/schedule/presentation/16/ Capable embedded electronics are getting cheaper, and most tinkerers have thought at some point about enhancing their lives by automating some aspect of their home. This workshop will equip the participants with the basic knowledge required to wifi-enable household objects, and respond to sensors such as switches, sound, and light. Particpants will learn how to script behaviours on the ESP8266 wifi module using the LUA scripting... Topics: lca, lca2017, #linux.conf.au#linux#foss#opensource, AlastairD'Silva
Daniel Vetter http://linux.conf.au/schedule/presentation/57/ A tale from one of the busier places (by patch churn at least) in the kernel, and how to make it all work well.

It provides free and open access to all of its materials to anyone with an internet connection, making it a treasure trove for researchers, historians, and curious individuals. Of course, having a collection that large doesn’t help anyone if it’s difficult to access. To help with this, Internet Archive has released a number of open APIs and tools to allow people to upload and... favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 1 reviews ) Topics: internet archive, api, software development, archiving, programming, lca2016, linux.conf.au 2016
Abstract While community management and developer relations are gaining acceptance, many companies still don’t know that these efforts can benefit not only the communities of the open source projects on which their business relies but also their productivity and profitability. VM Brasseur looks at community from a business perspective and explores the effect community can have on an organization’s bottom line. Although there are communities everywhere, Vicky approaches the... Topics: lca, lca2017, linux.conf.au, open source, community, community building, community management,...
